At Get Fresh Farms, we want to change the way food is grown. One tomato, one fish, one delicious head of lettuce at a time. We just don't think that it makes sense to have your tomatoes picked half-ripe and trucked in from thousands of miles away. So we grow our produce right here in Fort Wayne, Indiana.
Since our climate is admittedly less than perfect for growing produce year-round, we grow our food in a greenhouse. And in order to keep our environmental footprint as small as possible we grow our food in an aquaponics system.
In a nutshell, this means that we raise fish and plants in a closed-loop, symbiotic system. The fish provide the nutrients for the plants. The plants clean the water for the fish. And since fish don't like pesticides and plants don't like antibiotics, we don't use either. In fact, our food is certified organic.
If this sounds like your kind of food, here's how you can get your hands on some. If you're a local restaurant, interested in fish or produce, call or email us – you'll find our contact information at the bottom of this page. If you want to buy fresh produce for yourself and your family, you can come see us at the Fort Wayne Farmer's Market (see our events page for dates and times). If you can't wait that long, order online right now, and we'll bring your food to your door tomorrow. We deliver anywhere in Allen County.
Our online store will be available from Saturday to Wednesday. Harvesting will happen on Thursday and deliveries will start Thursday night and finish up on Friday. All orders placed before Wednesday at 10pm will be delivered within the next 48 hours. Pickup orders can be scheduled for Thursday or Friday.
